IRCA: Starved Rock Lock Width Restrictions

 

I just received word that Starved Rock Lock has a 2’ ice shelf on the left descending wall and will now begin a 105’ width restriction.  Helper boats are required in both directions, as are ice couplings.

 

I’ll send more updates as I receive them.

 

Best regards,
